Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer

Three quick updates from my desk.

1. Somewhat to my own surprise, I’m still on track with the #1000WordsOfSummer project. You know what’s helped me out with it lately? Returning to the “first sentences” that The First Line has used in the past. It’s never too late to use them as prompts (unless, I guess, you might want to send anything that results from them to The First Line).

2. It’s the middle of the month! Since I have a very busy final week of June awaiting, I’ve been working ahead on the July edition of The Practicing Writer 2.0. Meantime, don’t miss out on all the opportunities that remain open for your consideration in the June issue.

3. And earlier this morning, the June 2022 Jewish Book Carnival went live over on the My Machberet blog. I’m happy to serve as this month’s host for the project that offers a space where those who cover Jewish books online “can meet, read, and comment on each others’ posts.” Organized by the Association of Jewish Libraries (AJL), the Carnival travels around and is hosted on a different participant’s site on the 15th of each month.
